If you’re planning a baby shower for a friend, you’ll find the prettiest baby shower cake options at our store. We also have loads of ideas for birthday cakes in Johannesburg.

The Oh My Cake! team has perfected many cake, cupcake & macaron recipes over the years. We are all about pushing the boundaries of edible art, without losing focus on taste. It is important to keep a good balance between the different flavours incorporated into a cake. Our Spiced Chai mud cake is the perfect example of combining different elements to create a cake with just the right amount of sweetness, and unexpected spicy notes, to treat your palate.

At Oh My Cake!, we offer a variety of frosting colours, cleverly used in ways that draw attention to a novelty cake for all the right reasons. Can’t choose one colour? Get them all, with a rainbow cake design. Subtle not your style? Go #overthetop with our #OTT cake. Need more colour in your life? Our Tropical Unicorn cake will perfect your party table. Or, grab our photo-worthy Cool as a Watermelon and Fairy Dust cakes, which incorporate lighter pastel shades.

Up the wow factor with our Sprinkles Faultline cake – smooth white buttercream frosting, chockfull of colourful sprinkles – there’s really no better choice for a birthday cake! If you prefer a muted colour palette, check out the Lavender Watercolour cake or Rose Cascade cake – subtle and beautiful, perfect for a baby shower or bridal shower. We offer competitive birthday and wedding cake prices in Gauteng.

If you can’t decide on the flavour of your cake, get in touch and we can schedule a time to meet with you. We’ll discuss the occasion, design of the cake, and of course, you’ll get to taste all of the delicious options we have available. Generally, when choosing a flavour for a wedding cake, we recommend a flavour that will please most palates, such as vanilla. However, there are loads more adventurous options to play with - chocolate, vanilla, carrot, red velvet and our ever-popular spiced chai, with fillings such as earl grey ganache, strawberry buttercream and dulce de leche filling. In fact, you’re not even limited to just one flavour! We’ll help you to choose the perfect combination to make the different layers blend in the tastiest way possible.

Trust the Oh My Cake! team to create your dream cake

If your dream cake is not already in our store or catalogue, don’t fret! Get in touch, and our talented team of consultants and cake artists will help you bring your unique vision to life.

First, we mix ingredients to create a batter that tastes so good, it takes superhuman strength not to lick the spoon! In fact, we’ve created a macaron flavour that tastes just like it – Birthday Cake! We preheat our oven to ensure that the cake bakes evenly. Once they’ve cooled, we slice the cakes into perfectly even layers, fill them with delicious buttercream or ganache in a variety of flavours, stack the layers and expertly cover them in a smooth layer of buttercream. Our cake artists work their magic to turn a plain buttercream-coated cake into a unique work of art, with chocolate flourishes, macarons, candy, edible gold leaf and all manner of delicious & eye-catching edible decorations. Cakes are available in different shapes and sizes. Mini wedding cakes have become quite the trend, especially for small intimate settings. Our laser-cut accessories add a touch of flair (and customization!) to any cake. We can always add fresh flowers too! You can watch the process of our decorators creating an edible work of art, in our Decorating Room at our store. Grab a coffee or a Unicorn Latte, sit back and watch the magic unfold.

Not to worry – our team in Fourways is ready for you. Share your unique designer cake idea with us, and we’ll do our best to make it happen. Whatever happens, we guarantee that it will look like art and taste like dessert!
